I’m a not so proud butterfly gamer. Which is ‘what, exactly’ I hear you ask? Apparently (at least according to an ex colleague of mine), it’s the term used for people like myself that flit from game to game to game, never finishing anything, but buying pretty much everything that comes along (ok, so maybe I added that second part).
And I’ll get to them all I swear! That endlessly growing list of Steam games, for sure (and they were all bought on special after all). All those iPad / iPhone / 3DS / Vita games, not a problem. All those MMO’s, definately! I love my MMO’s!
I’m like the girl obsessed with shoes, with racks and racks of unworn stilletos, except these days I’m not even adding to my game bookshelves, they’re pretty much all digital. Of course that could be part of the problem, not seeing them makes it easy to hide them in my mind.
I’m extra lucky too. I work in games, and can therefore claim all my lovely purchases on tax. But do I? No. Why? Because I’m too embarrassed at the shear number of them. There’s no way I can justify them all to the tax person, surely. So I claim some imaginary number of them, a number that I figure would be reasonable.
Which brings me to the point of this blog. I figure that if I have to reveal all my game purchases, tell the world the games I’m playing and how far I get in them, give my thoughts on them, that I’ll recover my addiction. That way I can become a ‘normal’ MMO blogger and focus solely on a game or three. I need to play all the way through if I’m going to write about them right? That way I’ll also be able to go to work and proudly discuss my latest gaming ventures, including the endings!
I love working in the industry, I love my games, what can I say.
P.S. I’ll just buy one game to start this blog off, no point in looking at games that are already stashed away surely ….
